Affiliate Compensation Disclosure
Some of the web sites, products, and services I recommend provide compensation to RealCarTips.com in the form of referral fees or commissions. RealCarTips.com also gets compensation for display advertisements served from Google's Adsense network. This allows me to provide all information to the end-user for free. It is my belief that the site will grow so long as I provide the most useful car buying advice available. My promise to you is that all recommendations I make are chosen foremost for their ability to save you money, time, or hassle.
The Legal Stuff...
GOOD FAITH RECOMMENDATIONS
I recommend web sites, products, and services on RealCarTips.com based in part on a good faith belief that the purchase or use of such products or services will help my users. I have this good faith belief because (a) I have tried the product or service mentioned prior to recommending it or (b) I have researched the reputation of the Provider and have made the decision to recommend the Provider’s products or services based on their history and reviews. The representations made by me about products and services reflect my honest opinion based upon the facts known to me at the time a product or service is mentioned on RealCarTips.com.
YOU SHOULD ALWAYS CONDUCT YOUR OWN INVESTIGATION (PERFORM DUE DILIGENCE) BEFORE USING OR BUYING PRODUCTS OR SERVICES FROM ANYONE VIA THE INTERNET. THIS INCLUDES PRODUCTS AND SERVICES SOLD ON THIS WEBSITE AND ALL OTHER WEBSITES.
Unless otherwise expressly stated, you should assume that all references to products and services on RealCarTips.com are made because material connections exist between the website's owner ("Owner") and the providers of the mentioned products and services (“Provider”).
POTENTIAL BIAS AND DUE DILIGENCE
The Owner’s opinion about a product or service may be partially formed (consciously or subconsciously) in part based on the fact that the Owner has been compensated or will be compensated because of the Owner’s business relationships with the Providers.
In some instances, the Owner and a Provider will have a business or personal relationship that does not involve the Owner receiving compensation related to products and services mentioned on RealCarTips.com. However, the nature of the relationship is sufficient to establish a material connection between the Owner and the Provider.
Because there may be a material connection between the Owner and Providers of products or services mentioned on RealCarTips.com, you should always assume that the Owner may be biased because of the Owner’s relationship with a Provider and/or because the Owner has received or will receive something of value from a Provider.
Perform your own due diligence before purchasing a product or service mentioned on RealCarTips.com (or any other website).
The type of compensation received by the Owner may vary. In some instances, the Owner may receive complimentary products, services, or money from a Provider prior to mentioning the Provider’s products or services on RealCarTips.com.
In other instances, the Owner may receive a monetary commission or non-monetary compensation when you take action based on the content of RealCarTips.com. This includes, but is not limited to, when you purchase a product or submit personal information to a Provider after clicking on an affiliate link on RealCarTips.com.
The Owner’s goal is to make your experience using this website a pleasant one. If you have any questions about products or services mentioned on this website, please contact the Owner and have those questions answered prior to making a purchase of such products or services.
